Surf Points in Weligama Sri Lanka

Weligama Beach Break
The best spot in the Weligama area for a beginner is beach break point in front of Marriott hotel and near by beach area. However, due to the sandy bottom it does not usually start producing a big enough wave; the good news is that you can find waves there well after the season has finished and even at the start of the year in January and February.

Pelena Beach
The next best option is probably Elephant Rock, a 15 minute, 1000LKR return, tuk tuk ride south. This spot tends to start working well mid season, about July but you can find good surf before that especially early morning or on days with little wind. Aside from having decent waves it is a very beautiful spot to surf or just enjoy the beach or climb the rock. The advice is not to wear loose fitting flip flops as you have to climb across a fairly steep 45 degree rock face to enter the beach. See our Ultimate Guide to Elephant Rock for more information.

Plantation - Midigama
Peanut Farm and Whiskey Point are both slightly more advanced waves and generally have more crowds. Overall Whiskey Point tends to carry the worst vibe of all places especially when crowded. For more info on Whiskey Point see our other website (opens in a new window).
